I took it out to SlickRock last weekend and had a blast in it!
I really need to build a roof rack as I got cooked in the sun.

I haven't seen your Bronco in over a year and I noticed the garage door opener is in the flat fender... another one converted

dual fuel tanks?

Got any pics of the seat mounts? Are those just normal Corbeau low backs?

I love this trail. When I was a kid it was the only road into Spicer res. It's short now, but still really pretty, and coming through Silver creek is awesome. Congrates to you.

I look at it every day, it sits sadly in the driveway.

Yup, I have dual tanks, the seat mounts are just 1 inch or 3/4 square tube, build a simple little frame, I'll try and take a pic or 2.

I tried to go wheeling over the weekend, stupid snow...
I need a top and windshield wipers.

Any updates on this one? How is the 302 working out for you?

I do still love the 302, while it was down on power when I swapped it in, it is still better than a 4 banger.

I think the only thing I've do the motor is a few carb swaps, it currently has a quadrajet on it and it's ok. As much as it pains me, I might look for a cheap EFI setup. For a car I never really drive, it sucks to try and get it to start after a few months of sitting.

I can't recall if I had to lengthen the splines on the shafts or not, if you do, it's very easy.

I'm a dyed-in-the-wool carburetor guy, but I recently went to fuel injection and I am officially converted. I think there's lots of good stuff out there for the 302. My buddy had a CJ7 with a fuelie 302 out of a crown vic and even though that's not a "performance" engine the jeep didn't seem to notice. A custom hardtop would help out in that snow!

Still the same Jeep, open diffs, and 33's, nothing changed, it was driven 357 miles saturday/sunday, but on the way home sunday blew a front wheel bearing at 70mph, and blew the heater core out of it shortly after, I hope there is no motor damage as it was running hot. I guess it's time to maintenance
I still love this flat fender.

Didn't happen to be the driver front bearing???? We all know you would drive anything that moved. All the others in the backyard probably wouldn't get you to a hospital...So the last choice???
